Labelling NonconformistsConformists are people who follow a certain life style and never stray from the path or try anything that no one else is doing. Non-conformists set new thoughts and ideas; they follow their own path, and do their own thing. Sometimes conformists will like something a non-conformist does and follow them for a brief period- as long as everyone else does it too. Other times non-conformists are scolded for their different approach to things, as well as their actions.

Countries such as Sweden, Britain, and Ireland have had success with such a program but why hasnt it touched the average citizens ears. With school choice a student wanting to become a chef would attend a high school that teaches cookin
China vs. India vs. AmericaWhen America thinks of China and India they dont imagine them taking over their ranking as number one. America in-visions them as deeply cultural places that focus too much on the past then the future. However, China and India have progressed a lot in the past years. In fact there is speculation that they will soon surpass the United States of America, because we are not growing fast enough to keep up. This is the new world of globalization: where America is in direct competition with China and India. Businesses have to compete nationally to survive, but how? The Government can help business survive this new competition with several new policies of action. Still, is it really necessary? In the long run will it be a problem? To answer this, our government must understand how China and India have grown, focus on how each will be affected in the long run, and how we should alter Americas economic strategy.
The ancient land of China, who was so long suppressed by their socialist gove
